So my daughter (6yo) was bugging me to help her make a doll. We finally downloaded a free pattern (I can try to find the site again if anyone is interested), and she cut out the pattern pieces, cut out the fabric, sewed it all together on the sewing machine (I helped a bit on the curves), turned the pieces right side out, stuffed them and sewed them together. She then drew on the face and hand-stitched the hair on. I helped her get started with the hand sewing, but overall, she did 95% of the work herself! I am so proud of her!
Here is her doll - Betsy
And the proud momma with her dolly:
Thanks for looking!
